Greydon introduces the Genesis-M, the newest in the Genesis line of digital printers for medical device and blister packaging.
Genesis printers are designed to print the complete package, eliminating or drastically reducing the need to manage pre-printed materials. Its fully digital workflow does not require printing plates, allowing for faster changeover and increased OEE.
Genesis comes in both traversing and stationary inline configurations for printing on horizontal packaging or blister machines. Available in single-color, two-color and full-color (CMYK+W), the Genesis can also be paired with a secondary form of printing (Flexo, TTO, TIJ, CIJ, etc.) for a hybrid system that prints on both sides of the film.
Both the Genesis-M and the original Genesis use XactCure™ to cure UV activated inks on both porous and non-porous substrates. XactCure is a process integrated into the printer to control and record every aspect of the curing process. Taking all the variables into account for proper curing, XactCure prevents ink migration and cracking, even on difficult-to-print IV bags.
Genesis interfaces with serialization and manufacturing software for complete UDI and DSCSA compliance–compatible with both GS1 and HIBCC standards.
To provide medical companies the benefits of paperless record-keeping (while ensuring document security and authenticity) extensive reporting, including 21 CFR Part 11 tags, is included.
Greydon also provides label template design software which can be installed on a separate PC for template creation and management. As this software is also installed on the Genesis HMI, it can be used directly on the machine for local label creation and editing.
The HMI comes with multiple user permission-based controls to prevent unauthorized changes to the label, the configuration, or even the operation of the printer. Additionally, Greydon’s customized electronics allows for full feature functionality and development.
